You could have something wrong with your tires also causing this.

|chris.george||Related, why is everyone up-in-arms about the Johnny Joints? The only big reason I can see is the extra degrees of movement (30║ vs 22║).|

............ I only have a 2"spacer-lift and 285/75 X 17 tires, but I seem to have just a SMALL bit of steering drift over 50-mph.
So I am "considering" LCA's and if I do go this direction, they will be Full-Traction. Thier Quality is A+

Control arms will not matter. These go from shorter than stock to longer than stock.
You need to watch when your using one companys coils with another ones track bars or drop brackets, pitman arms etc.

So far i'm leaning towards Full Traction now.
Does anyone know if there might be any ill-effects of a "hodge podge" system i.e. Pro Comp lift with other manufacturers products, and how it might affect the ride, etc? Mostly a curiosity question because I've also been debating replacing the springs and shocks to improve the ride as well. Maybe an adjustable track bar if I feel the bump steer is unruly.
Thanks for all the feedback!

Check out our lower heim joints. These kit has been on 4wd hardware team 311 TJ after 5 years of competition use.
I took this picture before the jeep entered into the King of the Hammers race.

|the Kolector||I just installed Synergy LCA's, no offense to Full Traction or their product, bought from EAD Offroad. Put on an adj front trackbar as well over the weekend. No comparison to the stock garbage that was on there.|

Those things are beefy.

Terraflex LCA's are what I use.
Overbuilt is an understatement. Definitly more stable than the stock arms.
You'll need a 2" open end wrench for adjustment.
Haven't tried Full Traction so I can't comment.

|chris.george||Thanks kbwwolf, your recommendations are always welcome!|

|kbwwolf||x2 on the Full Traction stuff. Everything I've bought from them has been top-notch.|

We sell all over the world, just not California
Our control arms are made out of e 2in x .250in wall DOM steel tubing and use the same 4130 FK Chromoly Heim Joints with Teflon lining.
The frame side uses Clevite torsion rubber bushings.
What this really means, No grease and no maintenance. No noise either! We use the same heims and tubing as our Jeep speed kits, and KOH jeeps!

Front Lower Control Arms - Opinion(s) Wanted
I'd give you a penny for your thoughts, but with gas prices the way they are....
I'm jumping on the bandwagon a bit because I've been sitting on this issue for a while trying to feel out what I needed for my own sanity.
I finally decided I need to bite the bullet and get some front LCAs to help with my castor and, most importantly, the crazy steering at highway speeds. I have to get away from those coppers safely, don't I? I plan to possibly beat these off roading in SoCal, the Sierras (NorCal) and on the beach; maybe a bit of that "on-road" driving too (by that I mean quite a bit). So I want a pair that lasts a while, and a brand I could trust should something happen.
A little background: ProComp 4" Stage I lift. I (think) it rides about 3.5" but I didn't have the original measurements.
Anyhow, I'd like some opinions for those with some experience using one of the following brands (ignore price for now):
Off Road Evolution (the brand in general seems more popular at jk-forum than here, big California following there?):
EVO Front LCAs
Currie JK FLCAS
Full Traction "Ultimate" Control arms
